Yes, this would be useful.  Another thing I'd like to have is a way to
add a short summary to a bug so people see at a glance what's the bug
about (and no, I'm not convinced this summary is (or should be) the
same as the subject); another thing which might be good is an "action"
tag saying what is being done about the bug (e.g. maintainer takes
care, package being removed, etc) [ Actually, taken-by could be part
of this 'action' tag ].  During the freeze, BugScan can show packages
to be removed; BugScan has its own file for this; it would be nice to
put this information in the BTS so various tools can use that instead
of each having it's own files.
